The Rosebank Road South Community in Pickering

I was walking around enjoying this pocket of Pickering and wanted to share.

Located south of the 401, this community has quite defined boundaries.  There are only 2 ways into this community:  Granite Court, through an business section of Pickering or Rougemount Drive, off Kingston Road.

Isolated from North Pickering by the 401, we are also isolated from other areas by the Rouge River Valley to the west, Lake Ontario to the south and the GO Train tracks and Petticoat Creek Conservation Area to the east.  Therein lies some of the appeal of this neighbourhood.

I can walk to the waterfront trail along Petticoat Creek or over the bridge to the Rouge River beach.  The trees are putting on a vibrant display right now as we look down the valley.

In the summer, we can spend time throwing stones into the lake or wonder up to the cement pond swimming pool at Petticoat Creek.  Or walk up to our neighbourhood plaza for fresh organic produce from Tiano’s, delicious meal planning from Bruno’s and, don’t forget the Tornados, an ice cream treat, from Quickerts (they recently changed their name from Reid’s Dairy).

All of this community fun is at most a 15 minute walk away.

And Toronto is a 15 minute drive away.  I am two minutes from the highway and 15 minutes from the DVP.

There is a public school that services this community, Rosebank Road Public school and Blaisdale Montessori’s main campus is on Toynevale, down the street from it.  The students can walk to Dunbarton High School or step on the city bus to St. Mary Catholic Secondary School.

The price range for homes in this area start in the mid to high $300,000 and end upwards of $1,000,000 for river or lake front property.

Convenience and community.  The Rosebank Road South community is a great place to call home.
